need health care in america. one of the people who really got the people have asked me, what was it like? i tell people that barack obama, the most thing that i will say is driving him is that he watched his white mother died because of inefficiency in health care in america. i think that is the number one driving force, that he does not want to see that happen to americans, white and black, across the board. and he is going to fight with everything he has got because he watched it. he does not have his mother anymore, he does not have his father anymore, and i think he wants people like me who get laid off, 10,000 of us, and know that we need health care in america. thank god for people like sharon brower, the senator who is working hard -- like sherrod brown, the senator who is working hard on behalf of the american people. i worked 45 years of my life and got laid off. people have no idea what it is like to be laid off in america if you have never been laid off. we need this, and i thank god for barack obama, sherrod brown, in the people who are fighting for our rights to
and right for america. here in montana, we also know the value of an honest word. let me tell you, there is plenty of dishonesty out there about what health care reform will or will not do. now, you've all seen the tv show, mythbusters, right? i have been going around the state busting myths about health care, whether it is bogus information about rationing care, cutting benefits for sen yu y yurs or interfering with the doctor/patient relationship. these myths are being busted right open. they are just plain balogna. that's why our president is here to talk with us and help us spread the truth about health care reform. it will lower costs. it will give -- make sure every american has access to quality affordable health care. [ applause ] in closing, i want to thank all of you, the people i work for, for coming out today, for getting engaged and taking the initiative to get involved. that is the cornerstone of our democracy. that is why our nation remains the greatest on earth. >>> there you go. we are going to try and get that picture. it's almost like the interference you get fr
to montana, that is one of the most nra saturated states in america. people take their personal liberties very seriously there. even for someone to stand up and say that i am an nra member, this would normally rattle the roof. i bought that was very revealing. let's assume that it was totally on the up and up and very legitimate. there are still some things that the president said today that are not getting near the target. for example, he continues to use the phrase 47 million. that figure is nonsense. there are a number of people who are uninsured because they don't fill out the forms yet they already qualify for medicaid and medicare. there are 12 million illegal aliens, is the president for to pay for every illegal person? there are a number of people who could afford insurance but they choose not to have it because they would rather have a new track or go to dinner more often. let's be honest about the figure. if we want to cover 5 million americans that cannot have insurance, i don't know anyone who has a problem with that. that is not that difficult. what the president's now wants
a fair deal when it comes to health care in america. please give max bacchus a round of applause.

[applause] where did katy go. there she is, right there. her willingness to talk about such a painful experience is important because it is necessary
is to control the spiraling cost of health care in america. and, now, the message is, we have to change the insurance industry. >> president barack obama: this is something that sometimes we have forgotten, in the health care debate. these are ordinary americans, no different from anybody else. they are working hard and meeting responsibilities and are held hostage by health insurance companies that deny them coverage and drop their coverage and charge fees they cannot afford for care they desperately need. it is hurting too many families in business. -- and businesses and it is wrong and we'll fix it when we pass health insurance reform this year.

: president obama responded it is true. you cannot cover all the uninsured in america for three. he reiterated its promise to completely avoid raising taxes on those who earn less than 1/4 of a million dollars per year. the president has an answer. >> 2/3 of the money we can obtain just by eliminating waste and inefficiencies. the congressional budget office agreed with that, which is not something i am making up. republicans do not dispute it. the other 1/3 we would have to find additional revenue, but it would not come on the backs of the middle-class. shepard: the president said he appreciated the question and "the respectful way in which the man asked it." a nod to the reality that the meetings have become difficult at times. major garrett, there has been talk that things might get a little more rowdy. >> the audience here was first- come, first-served, unlike in new hampshire, which was by lottery. some people slept out overnight to make sure they got into the auditorium. the town is just outside of a big city in montana. the state has been trending democratic of late. the questions the p

[laughter] >> it's slightly revised. [applause] >> if i were going to do this, i actually argue in the book that we really don't need a mandate and i don't think mandates are going to be very popular. because mandating anything with the american people is never very popular which is why it makes me mad while the republicans think about sticking us with the mandates that we have today.

. i don't quite get that but they do. america is a conservative company with a small c in this way. they all say they want change but they don't want quite as much as they think they want when they get in the ballot box. and so you can't change the system and push everybody in a certain way they don't want to go. so in 2004 i said, you know, let's keep the employer-based system is because i think you need to give the american people the choice and if that's what they want, let them choose that. that's why obama's bill -- i'm such a fan of obama's bill. that's howard dean's version of healthcare, 2004. insure everybody under 30. let everybody else buy into medicare or keep their private insurance if you want. now here's what i like obama's bill. it gets back to choice. we have failed to insure people in this country not just because the insurance companies spend a lot of money with harry and lewis who have endorsed health insurance now. we failed because we tried to make the american people do something they didn't want to do. 80% of the people in this country have insurance. of tho

. >> with everybody in america had the provisions that our members have, there wouldn't be a health care crisis. >> reporter: it's like a health care cooperative, a community-based, nonprofit organization owned by its members, a group that uses its strength in numbers to negotiate competitive rates with health care providers. and that's an idea gaining traction on capitol hill. robert burns, a professor of health care management at the university of pennsylvania, said the key to co-ops is size. 20,000 to 50,000 enrolles minimum needed. >> if they're not big enough, then they won't be able to do either of those two things, hold down the administrative costs internally or negotiate good rates externally. >> reporter: even then it may not be enough. do you see health care co-ops as the silver bullet to this debate? >> no. as i told my class last night, it's part of the silver buckshot. >> reporter: so, one of many that needs to be done for health care reform. he agrees, it may not suit everyone's health care needs, but he's at least hoping that it will force americans to think outside the box. >>
strong majority in america that says no. sean: we have spent a lot of time talking about what is now commonly known as the death panels, these end-of-life counselors, the house will would mandate that when they're older in life, this would be mandatory and maybe more often. the senate just confirmed that they are dropping it from the bill. they had been denying it existed and now they're saying we're going to drop it. is that a victory for the people showing up at town halls? >> yes. they were trying to say these are nuts and sarah palin isn't very smart. sean: put a victory in sarp's column. >> i -- sarah palin's column. >> i found an op ed, which was a soup esh and said this is a real problem give financial incentives to doctors where we relied upon them working out with layer lawyer and now we are going to have a doctor going to make complicated decisions. and going to give them money to do it and then have them provide key questions and available resources. and the government defines both. is the government going to say, the catholic church is an available resource when it comes
to give the grassroots of america an opportunity to speak up as you're seeing every day on television, and i think that that's a good thing. >> niki tsongas, president obama mentions chuck grassley constantly as one of the responsible republicans in the senate who is trying to work on a solution. chuck grassley when given a chance to describe to his constituents what he's doing, he says he's sticking his fingers in the dike. that must have been pretty disappointing for you democrats in the house who have been waiting for the senate to move and waiting for the senate finance committee in particular which has missed all the deadlines chairman max baucus set for it. >> i'd like to go back to the notion that we're going too slow. in addition to doing the two town halls i've done as a part of this august district work period which have been so helpful to me and i think important to my constituents, i also have done four telephone town halls which allows me to use technology to reach across the districts. in one of them i had an 85-year-old gentleman from lawrence, massachusetts, an old ind
.vitac.com >>> can't you tell? this make-or-break month for health care reform in america. look at all these town hall meetings going on just today. and some of them happening right now. florida, pennsylvania, senator specter again, montana, and nebraska, also hagerstown, maryland, and that's where senator ben cardin hosts a meeting this hour. we're keeping a close eye on this one. cardin actually got booed and jeered monday at his town hall in towson. and in new jersey, congressman steve rosman hosting that one. and there's a bunch of town halls in iowa. >>> republican senator chuck grassley is hosting four of them today. the second one is wrapping up this hour. the president praised grassley yesterday as a republican that is honestly coming up with a health care reform both parties can live with. he's one of the group of six senators from both parties heavily involved in the negotiations. this event earlier in winterset was pretty civil, but the crowd of 3000-plus wasn't giving the senators any softballs either, take a listen. >> like i said, i'm a dumb, southern iowa red neck, and i see nowher
wife inside america's new rootless professional class i objected to that, to the publisher's decision to call this glass new. it goes back to the origins of world trade to the east india company and hudson bay company. there is nothing particularly new to be a fruitless soldier and diplomat or preacher or businessman or woman for decades ibm employees have said the initial stand for i have been moved. what is new, the relos themselves, the breadwinners -- i will start -- what is new is growth in numbers of corporate relos, a figure i estimate to be about 10 million people, that is the breadwinners themselves and their families and how that has grown with the growth of the american economy. american foreign trade to cite a statistical the goods and services we buy and sell abroad has leaped from about $400 million in 1970 to over 3 trillion now as companies american and foreign compete. they need people to carry their banner and build business far from home. you've not heard the word reloville because i made it up. it is about workers and families frequently relocating, they are see re
of the national security interests of america right now? >> i would feel more comfortable talking about this but i have more information on their contract. yes, sir. >> the president made a comment about that -- that the republican leadership made the decision -- [laughter] [inaudible] he didn't have a cross word either. i thought he -- >> that's what happens when he stuck with a cross word [laughter] >> it's an easy one to date. [laughter] >> it is thursday, a little tougher puzzle. >> it's august. >> the president said the republican leadership made the decision to oppose him. is this his political analysis or is this what he -- i mean is this like he knows this as a fact? >> i think it's -- i think it is a deducing from comments that he's read -- i think if you read comments in today's paper you might come to that conclusion. >> said he doesn't feel like the republican leadership is stealing from -- he doesn't fairly any more? >> i think there is a difference between some members of the republican party. i did you have seen members the president of dimensions that are -- >> he singled out repub
this done. this is obviously a tough time in america, a tough time here in montana. just six months ago we were in the middle of the worst recession in our lifetimes. we were losing about 700 jobs each month. economists of all stripes feared a second coming of the great depression. that is why we acted as best as we could to pass a recovery plan to stop the freefall. i want to just beat briefly about the recovery plan because that has our people's view of the health care debate. the recovery plan was divided into three parts. one-third of the money in the revery act went to tax cuts that have already started showing up in the paychecks of about 400,000 working families in montana. 400,000 working families have seen their taxes reduced because of the recovery act. [applause] we also cut taxes for small businesses on the investments that they make in more than 200 montanans small businesses have qualified for new loans backed by the recovery act, including ten businesses right in the boseman area. [applause] another one-third of the money in the recovery act is for emergency relief for folks
halls all across america. on tuesday i was in new hampshire talking about people denied coverage because of preexisting conditions. yesterday i was in montana talking about people who had their insurance policies suddenly revoked even though they were paying their premiums, just because they got sick. today we're talking about people like nathan and his family who have insurance, but are still stuck with huge bills because they hit a cap on their benefits or are charged exorbitant out of pocket fees. when you hear about these experiences, when you think about the millions of people denied coverage because of preexisting conditions and the thousands who have had their policies canceled because of an illness, countless people like nathan, i want you to remember one thing, there but for the grace of god go i. [ applause ] this is something that sometimes we have forgotten during the course of this health care debate. these are ordinary americans. they're no different than anybody else. they're working hard, they're meeting their responsibilities. they're held hostage by health insurance com
plan that is right for our state and right for america. here in montana, we also know the value of an honest word. and let me tell you, there's plenty of dishonesty out there about what health care reform will or will not do. now, you've all seen the tv show, "myth busters," right? well, i've been going around the state busting myths about health care. whether it's bogus information about rationing care, cutting benefits for seniors or -- doctor and patient relationship, these outrageous myths are being questioned -- >> it appears that we're returning into technical problems at this town hall meeting in montana. it's gallatin field airport hangar. david schuster is still with me, but interesting note. senator baucus taking on first off, health insurance and what people are paying and the coverage that they're not getting. you saw pelosi and even the president now focussing the health insurance industry as perhaps the bad guy in this. >> he said it's not okay for the insurance companies to deny people with pr existing conditions coverage, it is okay for him to take a lot of contr
. there are so many different philosophies and idea in america. i don't think any, any plan that comes out, will be acceptable to one part of the population or another to a very significant degree. and it's jealousy when somebody has something that you can't have, it bothers you. so i would look to suggest that there be one benefit plan for every american in this system. and then people who want to -- >> what's your question? >> then people who want to have other benefits besides that they can do something like the medicare supplemental insurance plans. so i would look to ask your opinion on that? >> both, both senator, well i shouldn't say, i shouldn't never speak for senator bachus. i feel in this area that maybe i can say that he and i are working toward something that is going to give americans more choice than what you are suggestion would be. now, will we be able to, working and talking, and i don't know there will be a product or not. but we are working towards a direction of having people to have choice. >>> the townhall held by senator chuck grassley. none of this is stopping. the
about the organizing for america town halls that you also went to? was that the place that would be ground zero for pushback by the white house? >> well, it perhaps was, but one of the first ones i went to in davenport, one man said, what are we doing here? we're all democrats. shouldn't we be out there trying to change minds and votes? that's one of the challenges, sort of the outgrowth of the obama campaign movement is undergoing now, how they should take this on. they were criticized by having people go to members district offices, but what they're saying is they don't want to flood these meetings and create a confrontation, but there are some democrats who want the confrontation. the ofa group is still finding its way on this. >> clearly, a balance to be struck between trying to fight back, but also turn down the temperature, which a lot of democratic lawmakers want. for your bottom line here, is this a case where because of the pi pictures and images we've been putting on television this week, that america may have gotten a very distorted picture of what's happening in the h
